Event description

Description

Did you know the British Army is supporting the new Lead skills builder?

We want to help as many girls as possible to achieve this so we’re offering Guides and Rangers the opportunity to join us for a takeover day at the Army Camp in Chilwell to gain their stage 5 Lead skills builder.

Over the course of the day the girls will do activities which will meet all the required elements of the stage five Lead skills builder and will test their leadership and teamwork skills.

All activities will be delivered by serving soldiers, most of them young women.

This event is suitable for Guides and Rangers aged 12 18. You can bring as many Guides and Rangers as you’d like but there must be one leader for every ten girls as they’ll be working in separate groups of ten. Leaders will be in addition to the total guests, so don't include yourself in your total number.

The event runs from 9.30am – 4.30pm, is free to attend, and a packed lunch will be provided. Those with severe allergies are advised to bring their own lunch as the caterers cannot guarantee that the food is allergen-free.

The site has steps and no ramps, so this would be a difficult event for anyone with accessibility issues.

The British Army will not use, demonstrate or display weapons or provide recruitment literature at this or any Girlguiding event nor will they encourage girls to make applications to join the British Army. This engagement activity has the sole aim of sharing leadership skills.
